What can I do for you?

I am a partner in Digital Consulting with 15+ years of experience in strategizing and leading complex, global, multi-stakeholder technology initiatives. Known for adopting emerging technologies to uncover business opportunities and develop strategies to improve products, services, operations and customer experience. I have helped clients in making right sourcing decisions, setting up and running Global Business Services (GBS), R&D Centers and Innovation hubs.

I have diverse experience in emerging technologies like IoT, Blockchain, Machine Learning and Cyber Security to fuel the foundation for next-generation ideas, solutions and business models. I have developed a strong innovation eco-system that helps me collaborate with different startup forums and academia to fail fast-fail safe, run design thinking workshops and adopt agile ways of innovation. My key strength is my ability to understand shop floor to top floor technology stack, connect it logically with customer needs and convert it into business opportunities.
